Let's dance while the music plays

7 years, 2 months ago at Sep 15 13:53
I think the balance of this film, for its oeuvre, was very close to perfect. It has some flaws but so do our lives. A film with heart and humour, great performances from the cast (this must have been a hoot to be a part of) and solid unshowy writing. I laughed, shed a tear, but the warmth of the film stays with me. The thanksgiving scene was splendid; I've been to a few myself when I lived in the ... read more

An average movie

I already saw this movie but since it was ages ago, I was quite eager to check it out again. Back in 2011, Jodie Foster finally made a come-back with ‘The Beaver’ and even though didn’t get much love when it was released, I thought it was a decent watch and it is rather surprising that it took her so long to finally come up with a new directing effort. Indeed, back in 1991, she made her dire... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- November 2018 (29 movies items)

" Starz- 1hr. 43min. First Viewing It doesn't reinvent the ensemble-family holiday picture, but Home for the Holidays wisely understands that most wounds aren't healed overnight, and sometimes chosen families are just as, or more, important than the ones we're born into. Though it's friction is, frequently, inorganically introduced, the strength of the actors sell the family tension expertly (especially Hunter and Downey), resulting in some surprising depths of truthfulness for the film.

1 - Robert Downey Jr.! (48 movies items)

"33 as Tommy Larson OMG I fell in love with his character in this movie! From his entrance of sneaking into his mothers house the night before Thanksgiving and ripping the covers off his sister and taking Polaroids of her. He's so absolutely crazy in this movie. It reminded me of his character Leo from Johnny be Good. Jodie Foster who directed and did commentary for the dvd said most of what his character said and did was improvised. He improvised on what he said when he danced with his m"
